Corn Flour Halva Recipe

Corn flour halva is an instant, no fuss preparation which is delicious and easy to make. You can use any essence, food colouring and dried fruits of your choice. Here I have used Raspberry essence and roasted cashewnuts. It can be served both chilled or at room temperature.

Ingredients :

  • 1 cup corn flour
  • 2. 5 cups of sugar
  • 4 cups water
  • Raspberry essence
  • 6 drops of Pink food colour
  • 3 tbsps ghee/ clarified butter
  • Juice of half a lime
  • A handful of broken cashew bits

Method :
Roast the cashew bits in a tsp of ghee. Keep them aside. Tip in the corn flour, sugar, water, lemon juice, food colouring and the essence into a non stick pan. Mix thoroughly and take care to see that it is free from lumps. Keep stirring on a medium flame. At one point, the mixture starts thickening and takes on a glaze. Add the ghee and keep stirring. Within a few minutes the halva starts leaving the sides of the pan. Drop in the roasted cashew bits, mix and pour the halva into a pre greased plate. Allow to cool thoroughly. Cut into desired shape.
